"They don't have to carry a gun," said Jerry Irvine, chief information officer of Prescient Solutions in Chicago and a member of the National Cyber Task Force.
"The problem isn't any one industry; the problem is hackers," said Irvine, adding that some organized crime rings do nothing but cybercrime. "They have better tools to hack and get into information than we as an IT industry have to secure our information."
The value of such crime reaches into the hundreds of billions of dollars, Irvine said.
Retailers must comply with payment card technology standards, and Irvine said Target very likely was complying, "but it's impossible to be 100 percent secure," he said.
Some cybercriminals are extremely patient, infecting a target's weakest system with a small program that gathers information that leads to accessing a more crucial system, and so on.
"Some systems can be breached for years. I don't know if that's the case at Target, but that is the type of thing that occurs," Irvine said.
